Worldcon Schedule

Friday August 31st:  (Updated to add Pyr panel!)

1:30 – 3:00 PM Pyr Rising:  Columbus Hall, Rooms A&B.  A shared panel between Dragon Con and Worldcon.  This will be extra fun because I have been in a writing workshop all week with one of the other Pyr authors, E.C.  Myers.  He will be on the Dragon Con side while I will be at Worldcon.  Pretty fun.  And by the way, Mr. Myers is a fine writer.  Which I would expect from Pyr.  But just saying. We are sworn to secrecy about what other people share of their work here, but I think we are allowed to say it’s good.

3:00 PM.  Broad Universe Rapid-Fire Reading.  I’ll join a number of great female writers for very short readings.  I will read from Mayan December (this is, after all, 2012!) and I will give away a few copies. These are always a lot of fun – drop by and hear great snippets from interesting readers.  Laugh a lot.  This will be in Grand Suite 3.

5:00 PM to 5:30, I’ll be the “Writer under glass” where I get to work on a collaborative story, and have people watch me while I do it! I’ve never done such a thing, and I have no idea if I’ll like it.  But the resulting manuscript will go into the charity auction….I hear this is in the Fan Lounge.

Saturday, September 1st

12:00 – 1:30:  The Art of Worldbuilding – Crystal C  Physical geography, economics and politics, religions, conflicts.

2:30 – 3:00 Reading.  I’ll read from my next novel, “The Creative Fire,” which will be out from Pyr in November, 2012.  This is in the Gold Coast room.

4:30 – 6:00 Creating formidable women protagonists.  Buckingham.
